Workshop "Evolution of interacting populations"

  • Beginning: Sep 15, 2019 16:00
  • End: Sep 17, 2019 12:00
  • Location: MPI Plön
  • Room: Lecture hall
  • Host: Hyejin Park and Yuriy Pichugin

Evolution is driven by individual birth and death. These microscopic processes drive the changes in the macroscopic population quantities. However, microscopic processes are not determined by traits of the single individual but rather are determined by interactions between individuals. Hence, studying interactions is crucial to understand the evolution of population properties. Theoretical models increasingly take into account the importance of ecological factors on evolution. In parallel, many experimental results have shown that ecological dynamics affects evolutionary dynamics. Collectively, these findings have shed new light on the ecology and evolution of various populations, including microbiomes, cancer cells, and multicellular organisms. In this workshop, we assemble scientists studying evolving ecological systems from mathematics and physics perspective to discuss the directions that evolution can take and how to model such systems.

Our workshop is composed of two parts. During the first two days, all speakers give presentations. On the last day, the workshop is concluded with a discussion.

Confirmed invited speakers are:
Tobias Galla,
Jeff Gore,
Silvia de Monte,
Andrew Morozov,
Wenying Shou,
Kalin Vetsigian

Registration an submission of abstracts is open until April 30, 2019.
